Speculations are rife that Sonam Kapoor's mystery thriller movie may opt for a digital release. Details inside...
While the pandemic has wreaked havoc in the country, the reopening of cinemas halls and theatres still remains questionable. Numerous filmmakers and producers have been pondering over the idea of a direct digital release on one of the streaming platforms rather than going through an uncertain wait for a theatrical release. Recently, several big-budget movies have skipped theatrical releases to have a digital premiere on OTT platforms. Now, if the recent reports are anything to go by, then Sonam Kapoor's collaborated project with producer Sujoy Ghosh titled Blind is looking at options for a digital release.
As per a report by Bollywood Hungama, the creators of the film are inclining towards a digital release, as per the current scenario. With uncertainty hovering around the opening of cinema halls, producers and filmmakers are being contacted by OTT platforms for a digital release of their projects.
The same report by Bollywood Hungama revealed that the makers of Blind are elated with how the film has come out in the final cut. After waiting for a theatrical release and now with the probability of a third wave of the pandemic, the makers are skeptical to take any risks and opt for a digital release. The producers have reportedly been in touch with three streaming platforms, exploring options for the digital release of the film and in the end, will go with the best deal.
If things go down well, Blind will mark Sonam Kapoor's digital debut as a lead actor. She was last seen in a supporting role in Netflix's AK vs AK. Her last theatrical release, alongside Dulquer Salmaan, The Zoya Factor is also available to stream on Netflix.
